Summer Term – Hope

Our theme for the Summer term is ‘Hope’ and our learning will be influenced by a range of exciting new texts. We will develop our understanding of the books and create a world instilling hope! Our inspirational texts for this term will inspire our learning across the curriculum.

Through our English learning, we will continue to develop our story writing skills and consider the narrative the stories follow. We will also consider different points of views when writing, for example writing diary entries, becoming journalists when writing newspaper articles and describing our own magical journeys! Our Science topics are ‘Materials’ and ‘Plants’, where we will be Identifying and comparing the suitability of a variety of everyday materials and even planting our own plants! Our Maths learning this term will focus on developing our understanding of fractions, measurement and time. We will also continue to revisit strategies for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division and practise these through arithmetic and problem-solving questions.
